I counted 10-15 at a time over this weekend, both days. I guess word is out that Davis is a nice place to come. They keep to themselves mostly, but I worry about "incidents" happening. A few have laptops. Most of this group seemed to be the high-end functional homeless. Their lives are organized, they have bikes and trailers. I think one of them is a grad student that I think I recognize. (No, not the freegan former grad student in transportation who seems to be mentally ill that was on Colbert.) A real grad student should have priority in Davis I guess. There's been several UC Davis students who have slept in tents to afford tuition - for years. And it was raining this weekend, and they need places to get out of the wet. The picnic table shelters work for that. Not sure how to respond to this. On the one hand, this bunch seemed like middle class people fallen on hard times. On the other hand, what's this going to turn into as word gets out about what a fine place Davis is to come? --["Users/YogaBhoga"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Homeless Resourceshttp://daviswiki.org/Homeless_Resources2013-01-13 19:54:54gcovillelinking in an orphaned page <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Homeless Resources<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 87: </td> <td> Line 87: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * ["Fourth and Hope"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Homeless Resourceshttp://daviswiki.org/Homeless_Resources2012-12-13 23:12:16ScottMeehleibforgot links <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Homeless Resources<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 26: </td> <td> Line 26: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ["Grace in Action"] is an [wiki:WikiPedia:Ecumenism ecumenical] foundation that provides food, social services, and, optionally, Christian fellowship.

He in NO way represents the homeless population of Davis. Further more, he is a threat to EVERYONE in our community.<br> + He is responsible for the death of a 17-year-old c. 1985. He has been charged with felony reckless child endangerment (the child aged 4) in 1998, as well as felony assault on an off-duty, injured davis police officer. He forcefully took the officers crutches and proceeded to beat him with them. On two different occasions (2008 and 2010) he battered women he knew to be pregnant. During the summer of 2009 he beat and bloodied a 16-year-old boy, in what everyone hoped to be his third and final felony, only to have charges dismissed by the district attorney. In the summer of 2010 he beat a woman in her 50's in order to steal her bottle of whisky. Two female davis residents have sought and received orders of protection/no-contact orders. Court orders that he routinely violates. Even the Davis Police have expressed their frustration at his continued presence, and one officer expressed his desire to erase his presence from Davis altogether.<br> + It sickens me that this is the individual choses to prove the point that homeless people are "human".<br> + We are human. He is a monster --["Users/SmellyGroundHog"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Homeless Resourceshttp://daviswiki.org/Homeless_Resources2010-10-01 16:51:50YogaBhogaComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Homeless Resources<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 92: </td> <td> Line 92: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-10-01 16:51:50'' [[nbsp]] Prompted by remembering my run-in with "The Crying Girl", I thought about homeless who were real.<br> + <br> + A while back in Denver one evening, I a young girl who sniffled and cried a bit I bought a bus ticket to her home back in Florida. She was begging for change and said she didn't have much more time before she had to run because the shelter was going to close up for the night. She was quite happy to walk to the station with me and get the ticket I bought her. I also got her a sandwich that she gratefully accepted. She had run away from home thinking it would be better and it wasn't. Her mom would take her back, she just thought it was so dreadfully boring at her home in Florida.<br> + <br> + I've given a few bucks to a couple of the homeless regulars downtown Davis, but mostly just talk to them once in a while about this and that. They are human beings after all. There's Kevin, the big crew-cut guy who is in and out of rehab, in and out of living in a storage locker or an apartment, once in a while lays up in the bushes. These days he's working. When he's not using, he's a good person. If he's on ecstasy he's quite fun and philosophical, very friendly. If he's on meth ...<br> + <br> + I don't remember the name of the older guy with the dog. But he's very friendly and pleasant.

Dinner on Tuesdays at 5:45PM and lunch on Saturdays at 11:30AM. The day's menu is posted at the head of the serving area. The meals are generally good and probably worth your effort. They are served cafeteria style, sort of. Once you get to the head of the queue, the servers pick up a tray and pass it down the line as each server asks you whether you want that particular food item or not. They insist on holding your tray until the end (this is stupid, but whatever). The tables are pre-set with silverware and a napkin, so you just sit down and eat. There are always empty spots, usually quit a few. Juice is available at lunch and 6 ounce cartons of milk at dinner. The food is middle-of-the-road American fare, never anything "gourmet" as that would cause problems among those with "less sophisticated palettes". There's always meat, but the meals are not meat-based. In other words, there's a bit of meat, but not a lot of meat. There are always several vegetarian items. They always have a large selection of single-serving desserts, such as pie, cake, brownies, etc. In the summertime the lunches are served and eaten outdoors. As expected, the evening meal is larger and offers more choices than the lunchtime meal. After everyone has been served, you may return for seconds if you wish (I rarely do this, as one almost always gets enough the first time throuch). This place deserves points for being a "no questions asked" place. Just show up, stand in line, get your food, and eat. This is a safe, peaceful place; no need to worry about that. There is no proselytizing, however you will have to listen to live piano music. <br> + <br> + == Food Not Bombs ==<br> + <br> + ["Food Not Bombs"] serves free vegetarian meals every Sunday 12:30PM at the bench in the center of ["Central Park"]. "It's not charity; it's a protest!" is their slogan. This is the best food anywhere, at the best price. The plates usually have a little grease film on them, so you may wish to wash yours or bring your own plate. This isn't nearly enough to be a health hazard though. The food, being vegetarian, is very safe and I've never heard of anyone getting sick from a FNB meal. As far as I know the meals are vegan, meaning no egg or dairy products are used either. FNB in many cities has a history of abuse from the police. Happilly, there have not been any confrontation with the authorities in Davis for a long time. So you may eat in peace.<br> + <br> + == Davis Community Church ==<br> + <br> + A free sack lunch (AKA the "snack sack") can be gotten at the ["Davis Community Church"], which is the big church across the street from ["Central Park"], Monday through Friday, at 11:30AM to 12:00 noon. It's known as the "snack sack" due to it's meager size. The few times I had it, it consisted of a ramen noodle cup, a child-size apple juice container, and airline-food-type crackers with artificial peanut butter (or something) filling. Most homeless people just bypass this as it's not worth the bother.<br> + <br> + == Grace in Action ==<br> + <br> + ["Grace in Action"] is a program operated out of the ["Grace House"]. It is a place to "chill", get a little food, talk to someone if you are troubled, etc. Their open/closed schedule is posted on the window to the right of the front door. It has an ecumenical foundation. They are very warm and friendly, though they will insist that you sign in and tell them about yourself.<br> + <br> + == STEAC ==<br> + <br> + The ["STEAC" Short Term Emergency Aid Committee] distributes free food and clothing to individuals once a month (and at other times on an emergency basis). You must get "in the system" to use this. This means you will have a "case worker". You can apply at either the DCM shelter (listed above) or at the ["Davis Community Church"].

The meals are generally good and probably worth your effort. There are vegetarian items on the menu.<br> + <br> + A free sack lunch (AKA the "snack sack") can be gotten at the ["Davis Community Church"], which is the big church across the street from ["Central Park"], Monday through Friday, at 11:30 to 12 noon. It's known as the "snack sack" due to it's meager size. The few times I had it, it consisted of a ramen noodle cup, a child-size apple juice container, and airline-food-type crackers with artificial peanut butter (or something) filling. Most homeless people just bypass this as it's not worth the bother.<br> + <br> + The annual ["Holiday Meal"].</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
